ASM Music Students Spread Holiday Cheer in and around Milan this Month

During December ASM music students have shared their voices and music with the wider community.

From Serravalle to greater Milan, ASM music students of all ages have been spreading holiday cheer beyond the campus walls during December.

The Upper School Choir and Jazz Combo students kicked off the month with a concert at the Serravalle Outlets. Their festive voices and holiday music warmed up the blustery day and livened the shopping mood at this premiere designer outlet mall. This was the very first ASM concert at this fantastic location and a wonderful showcase for our ASM music students!

The ASM String Orchestra and Elementary School Glee Club joined forces and visited a local retirement home, Anni Azzuri Mirasole, close to the school. They performed carols and played merry tunes for the residents. The Glee Club also brought their holiday songs and repertoire to two local "Happy Child" nursery schools not far from ASM. They sang and danced for a rapt audience of little ones whose smiles andapplause were oh so rewarding.

Coming soon: Annual Upper School Winter Concert and Elementary School Concerts. Parents, check the Parent Portal or the ASM Newsletter for dates, times and locations.

ASM Elementary Students Celebrate New Playground

ASM unveiled its new early childhood and elementary school playgrounds

Students were treated to a performance of "This is the Start of Something New" by the all-girl members of the ASM Glee Club to kick-off their recess and were even warmed up thereafter by hot chocolate and marshmallows.

The fun and shapely playgrounds games, slides and other equipment beckoned to elementary students with their bright colors, while ladybugs, turtles and porcupines enticed early childhood students to climb aboard and have fun.

A safety video featuring ASM PE faculty and teachers was shown to students prior to their recess to instruct them how to use and not use the new equipment.
